Iginla is obviously getting a little old and is on the downswing of his career, but I think he's still a very good player. I wouldn't say overrated at all - the guy has 30+ goals in his last 11 seasons. You can't overrate that. This year he has 22 points / 31 games playing on a shitty team with some sub-par players. He can and will be a major contributor, especially when put on a good team with some good players.

Iginla's UFA status next year has a lot to do with the return.

Who's to say Iggy won't leave whatever team he gets moved to, and go back to sign with the Flames in the offseason? You can't sell the farm for the potential worse case scenario of him only helping your team for a month or two.

For me, it's not even about how good he is. I think Iggy still has 4-5 years left in him. It's about trading away the face of the franchise. When you think Calgary Flames hockey, you think Jarome Iginla. He's the franchise leading scorer, captain, heart and soul. He probably has a ton of charities in the Calgary area and will probably Captain the next Team Canada. There's almost a code among Canadian NHL teams that you don't trade away your long time Captain. He eithers walks as a FA or is there for life. Naslund, Koivu and Sundin. None of those guys were traded and it looks like Alfy will retire a Sen.

Difference is a pretty high number of Flames fans polled wanted to see Iggy moved, so he can at least have a chance to win somewhere and so the Flames can get some assets in return.

I was choked we got nothing back for Naslund, when it was clear that so many here did not want him re-signed. At that point I'd argue that he was no longer the face of the Canucks even, with the emergence of the Sedins and Luongo. It would have been great to get a couple of draft picks back at the very least.

Iginla brings more than numbers
Very respected and continues to play the hard. He is a leader, and can still add an element on the ice that not many can.

Well Iggy said he doesnt want to be a rental player, he wants a contact extension to whoever he gets traded to.

Anyways I dont know any of those prospects

Matt Bartkowski
Selected by Florida Panthers round 7 #190 overall 2008 NHL Entry Draft

Alexander Khockhlachev
Selected by Boston Bruins roun 2 #40 overall 2011 NHL Entry Draft

Looked up there stats and Khockhlachev is a PPG player in the OHL and Bartkowski seems to have decent stats as a defencemen in the AHL.

I really like Iginla. For a while, when Calgary was actually considered a rivalry, I would openly admit to being an Iginla fan despite my hatred toward the team.

If he puts on that Bruins jersey.... ugggggh.

Bostons top 8

Seguin, Bergeron, Marchand, Lucic, Krejci, Horton, Iginla, Peverly.

Thats wat u call a stacked Top 8. Hopefully the Pens and Bruins just kill each other and they are limping there way into the finals against us.

i doubt it too. The only deal i can see us improving drastically is trading Luongo. And Tbay is hurting for a goalie.

Why does the Boston Bruins always get sweet deals on trades

I remember we were suppose to aquire Siedenberg to play with Erehoff but he got traded to Boston for cheap. Then we got destroy by Siedenberg in the finals with his toughness against the Sedins.


Quote:
Florida Panthers traded Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell to the Boston Bruins for Dennis Wideman, a 1st round selection in 2010 and a 3rd round selection in 2011.

Florida Panthers traded Dennis Seidenberg and Matthew Bartkowski to the Boston Bruins for Craig Weller, Byron Bitz and a 2nd round selection in 2010.

Ottawa Senators traded Chris Kelly to the Boston Bruins for a second-round draft pick in 2011.

Boston Bruins traded Andrew Raycroft to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Tuukka Rask.

Buffalo Sabres traded Daniel Paille to the Boston Bruins for a third-round draft pick and conditional fourth-round pick in 2010.
.
I thought Florida was our best friend.

Luongo's contract is fucking retarded, MG knows it, but is obviously gonna try and sell it like it's no big deal. He took a gamble by hoping the market for a goalie will increase, which it clearly has not. The point is, he's gonna have to put his ego away and come to the realization that he will not get what he expects for Lu, and will eventually have to settle for less.

I really wonder what type of offers he got for Lu in the off-season? In hindsight, I probably would have taken anything that included a top 6 winger/top 4 PP quarterback.

Edit: The Flames board is blowing up over the conditional pick..
